Chave J L Hermitage Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

*The 2009 Hermitage Blanc is one of the greatest whites ever made _chez_ Chave*, and that’s saying something given Chave’s track record. This spectacular wine, normally a blend of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne, exhibits layers of concentration, superb acidity and minerality, laser-like focus, and plenty of quince, white currant, citrus oil, honeysuckle, anise, white peach and apricot marmalade notes. This significant, full-bodied, dry white Hermitage should age for 30-50 years. However, given the vintage’s flamboyance, it will be drinkable early in life. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
